I still have enough that I have my collection broken down by season, time of day, and level of formality...

 

I have 3 bottles currently so my shoe collection far out paces. I went the watch route and realized that gets pricey really quickly so perhaps cologne isn't a bad move.

Honestly, with the more different color shoes I'm getting these days from vintage makers, the less concerned I am with exact matches for the belt.  Half the idiots you see in the wild have on brown shoes and a black belt.  Like... really bro?

There's a bourbon belt my size in clearance. So you think the Bourbon Manistee belt will pair well with my walnut Daltons?

Finally cooling off and getting some rain here. So the brown grain MacNeils with Dainite get the first run of the season.

Ok. I was just curious. I don't really need it, but I'd still consider purchasing the belt for $40.

I saw the brown grain MacNeils on display yesterday at an AE store and one of the wingtips was so uneven that you could notice it even when you have the shoes on. But your pair looks awesome.

I recommend traveling without shoe trees; they make your suitcase noticeably heavier.  I always keep shoes in my trees at home, but, if its a short trip, stuffing your shoes with socks, or even with the sort of paper used to stuff shipping packages, is just as effective and weighs less.  I put my socks in my shoes when I travel with a carry-on; the little bit of room it saves comes in handy.

I'm new to proper shoes, but not to travel.

 

Here's my dilemma, I finally have my starter-set of AE's and am about to spend a week away at a conference and in meetings. In the past, I would have tried to wear one pair and pack another that goes with a bunch of outfits.

 

Now, I'd like to not wear a good pair too many days in a row, and I'd also like to be out in my new shoes. 

 

I won't be wearing any suits. It will be chinos and jeans with shirts most of the time, a few meetings will call for a sportcoat.

 

I can make a case for the navy neumok, the natty HM, and the walnut strands. But that seems like a lot of shoes...

 

It's a 5 hour direct flight.

 

My usual flying shoes are a pair of vans or some Clarks driving mocossins.

 

Any suggestions? 

 

The boots might be a bit much for a long-ish flight, but also large to pack.

 

Do you guys bring trees for each pair?

I was curious about that as well.

Forgot to post pictures yesterday. Finally worked the Merlot Park Avenues into my rotation. My first pair of AEs.



I had to take awkward angle pic since my cubicle mate came in early. Tried to take a pic without making it look like I took a pic.

Today is the maiden voyage of my black Carlyles.

I was thinking if the shoes in question were used in a store for display purposes, maybe the lighter shoe was just faded a bit by the lighting. It would be a project, but maybe you could expose the darker shoe to light and, over time, it would lighten up to match. Just a thought.

Well over 50 pairs of shoes and I've never owned cologne....maybe I have some growing up to do....

Thanks for all the packing advice fellas!

 

Nobody seems to think I should try to take all 3 pairs :(
